It's easy to get attached to your original "dream" plan; however, something always comes up and new opportunities arise that change your focus and perspective. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that the entire design process is fluid. My design is a living concept, changing directions and priorities as needs and resources change. I find it's also helpful to have someone to discuss design ideas with. Whether this is a potential client, family member, neighbor, or a friend halfway across the world, discussing ideas in a dynamic dialogue will often open your eyes to new paths and possibilities. I love to talk permaculture, and I often leave these conversations feeling inspired and learning as much new information as I share.
